‘Water Baby’ is an exploration of love. Both emotionally and visually rich, it’s hard not to be captivated by it as it overflows with dynamic, youthful energy. 

Both courage and selflessness are captured sincerely throughout, with Young exhibiting real admiration for her subjects. This authentic storytelling of a mother-daughter relationship is supported by the father-daughter bond behind the camera. Young brought cinematographer father Gary Young on board, elevating the honest heart of this project. Their close partnership behind the camera elevates the clarity of her subject. The result is something close, cool and captivatingly human.

Set in Costa Rica, the landscape plays a pivotal role in the film: beautiful yet turbulent, battling with thunderstorms and torrential rain, ‘Water Baby’ was born.
